Encyclopedia Britannicney: It’s Britney, Bitch – Part Two

STUDENTS! We’re back with Part Two of Encyclopedia Britannicney’s “It’s Britney, Bitch” edition, covering the BLACKOUT era of Britney’s career. Once again, we are joined by special guest professor Jordan Miller of BreatheHeavy.com, and visiting professor Sal.

As in last lecture, you can find a full timeline of this era here (we know it gets complex), and your Part Two reading list is available here.

**Please excuse sound wonkiness at the end, as well as professor Maddie saying “exactly” 1,000,000,000 times.

Encyclopedia Britannicney: It’s Britney, Bitch – Part One

Attention, students! It’s not often we have a Nobel Laureate* in our midst!

In today’s ultimate edition of Encyclopedia Britannicney, It’s Britney, Bitch,”, the professors sit down with Jordan Miller to discuss the era surrounding Blackout. Jordan founded Britney’s largest fan site, BreatheHeavy.com, when he was 15 years old. BreatheHeavy.com ushered many young stans (your professors included) through the most tumultuous period in modern pop culture history.

We spend time talking to Jordan about the formation and growth of BreatheHeavy.com, all while he was still a teenager. We ask him about the times he has been in Godney’s presence, and die.

We then launch into 2006 and 2007. We cover Britney and Kevin’s divorce, and Britney’s unraveling thereafter. We address the absolute paparazzi frenzy that ensued in this period, including coverage of her infamous night club appearances with Paris and Lindsay, as well as the unparalleled paparazzi moment of the decade: when Britney shaved her head.

Part Two of “It’s Britney, Bitch” will be posted soon. To see a full timeline of this period, go here. And to read your sources, find your bibliography here.

*Jordan Miller is not a Nobel Laureate… yet.

Comparative Socialite Studies: La Lohan and The Genius of Madness

Students, take your seats! This lecture’s going to be a doozy, as the time has come for us to study the one socialite to rule them all: Lindsay effing Lohan. La Lohan proved to be funner, crazier, and red hair-ier than the rest, giving her a special place in 2000s history and beyond. From Olympic-medalling sexual escapades to political aspirations, and a complex code-based language employed in her social media posts, Lindsay definitely knows more than you think.

We also discuss pressing matters such as James Franco’s pretension, 2005’s VMAs, and why Kanye West should deliver his State of the Union using the staging set-up from the Life of Pablo tour.
